Subject: Fun B Western with the early Duke
After John Wayne initially washed out as a leading man in big pictures, he made a string of poor man's westerns for Lone Star (Monogram). I've seen a couple of these and they're a pretty mixed bag. This one's fine, with plenty of chases, some pretty okay gunfights and fairly silly fisticuffs, and a few scenes where you can definitely see the Duke we know and love shining through.

Check out around 23:30, for instance, when the recuperating John recognizes his father's killer. It's subtle, but I can already hear indications of his more famous roles in this little exchange.
